Range Rover Evoque: Tyre pressure compensation for low ambient temperature changes

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque L538 (2011–2018) Owner's Manual / Tyres / Tyre pressure compensation for low ambient temperature changes

A colder ambient local temperature will reduce pressure within the tyre. An effect is to decrease sidewall height and to increase tyre shoulder wear with the potential for tyre failure.

Vehicle dynamics could also be adversely affected.

Tyre pressures can be adjusted to compensate before the start of the journey. Alternatively, tyre pressures can be adjusted when the area of lower ambient temperature is reached.

In this situation, the vehicle must be left in the ambient local temperature for at least one hour before tyre pressure is adjusted.

To compensate for colder ambient temperatures, tyre pressures should be increased by 0.14 bar (2 psi, 14 kPa) for each 10°C (20°F) decrease.

Note: Ensure that correct tyre pressures are maintained when moving to areas of differing ambient temperature.

 Flat spots due to long term parking

In order to minimise flat spotting, the tyre pressures can be increased to the maximum as stated on the tyre sidewall, for the period when the vehicle is stationary. Tyres must be returned to the

 Age degradation

Tyres degrade over time due to the effects of ultraviolet light, extreme temperatures, high loads, and environmental conditions. It is recommended that tyres are replaced at least every six years,

 Replacement sensor

Should the sensor require replacing, it should be carried out by a Dealer/Authorised Repairer. A replacement sensor must be fitted to a running wheel in order to be recognised by the system. The vehicle needs to be stationary for 15 minutes during the sensor fitment before the system is ready

 Locking wheel nuts

Locking wheel nuts can be removed only by using the special adapter provided in the tool kit. Note: When the vehicle is first supplied, the adapter may be stored in the glove compartment. It should be removed and stored in the tool kit as soon as possible. Note: A code number is stamped onto
